How can I Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up effectively on campus? Wear your mask! Masks should cover your nose and mouth and should be worn indoors in public spaces and outdoors when you can not effectively be physically distant from others. If you do not own a mask, you may purchase one in the Campus Store. Back Up: practice physical distancing by leaving 6 feet between you and others. Wash up: wash your hands often.
What should I do if I was exposed to someone with COVID-19? Report any potential exposure or symptoms to the Dean of Students Office and follow any instructions they provide to seek medical care or to quarantine.
What should I do if I see another student who isn't wearing a mask? Remember, this is the year of community. Please remind them nicely to wear their mask. We are all doing this for each other. Should you have questions, you may contact the Dean of Students Office.
How will office hours be managed? All support services are still fully available to you; some are just offered in a different way. For example:
Dear Students and Colleagues –
A brief update here – I know you are all deep into the work of the semester.
Students - this is your last reminder (from me, anyway) to apply for Emergency Relief Funds. All students - undergraduate and graduate, part-time and full-time—may apply for these funds, which are available to offset costs and hardship brought on by the pandemic. You cannot receive relief funds if you do not apply for them. Review of those applications begins at the end of the day on Monday, March 1, 2021. If you have questions, please contact Edgewood Central.
See what I did there? Monday, March 1, 2021? A new month is almost upon us, and there’s great stuff happening on campus as we begin to emerge from a typical Wisconsin winter. Our students perform “The Theory of Relativity” this weekend. Friday, there’s a great in-person opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to enjoy “A Winter Wonderland” right here on campus – complete with a bonfire and “iceless” ice skating. And our student-athletes – now able to compete – are ramping up their seasons, including our Women’s Basketball team who play two games this weekend at Wisconsin Lutheran with the NACC Championship on the line.
I call attention to these events not because we’re returning to ‘normal.’ I hope you agree that we want to be better than what was considered normal. The improving weather, the lengthening of daylight hours, our students engaged both in and out of the classroom – these are signs of a community that continues to put in the time and energy into shaping a healthy and vibrant Edgewood College. For that I am grateful to all of you.
Let’s keep it up, wear our masks, and be there for each other
Cor ad cor loquitur.
